Write a Script and add as media type in zabbix

Hi, every body

Today I’d like to write a article about wrtting a script by python and use it in zabbix as a media type for sending triggers by sms:

First : create a file with name : ghasedak.py , and write your script.

Pay attention to first line “#!/usr/bin/env python”, this line have to be here for running script by python.

We must use sys.argv . sys.argv is a list in Python, which contains the command-line arguments passed to the script.

you can write any script that work’s with your provider

#!/usr/bin/env python
import requests as requests
import sys
url = "http://api.smsapp.ir/v2/sms/send/simple"

frm = 'my number'
to = str(sys.argv[1])
message = str(sys.argv[2])

payload = "message=" + message + "&sender=" + frm + "&Receptor=" + to + ""

headers = {'content-type': "application/x-www-form-urlencoded",
           'apikey': "mykey",
response = requests.request("POST", url, data=payload, headers=headers)

Save this Script and in terminal enter : sudo chmod +x ghasedak.py

GO to Adminisrations->Media Types and create a new media type, do like this:

Go to Users and create a new User:

Then Go to media tab for your user, add media ,select media type and tel_number in ‘Send to’

finally check severity that you want and enable it.

Now, Go to configuration->Actions and create action for triggers :

set conditions ,I use sms if trigger severity is equals High, change it to your own opnion.

In action you are calling a  group of trigger and you can filter in user that each user recieve a specific trigger.

for example admin can recive all trigger severiry and guest can see warning and ….

Go to operations tab ,do this

add new in Operatios like this:

add user or users you want to recieve trigger’s sms:


Do recovery operations and update operations like above
